The Big Picture: The Economy

Joseph Stiglitz, winner of the Nobel Prize in economics, joins us for this week’s edition of our election series The Big Picture, to discuss the major issue of the midterm elections: the state of the economy. He’ll look at how the recession has played out, the economic solutions being debated on the campaign trail, and what policy changes would lift the country out of its economic slump. His latest book, Freefall: America, Free Markets, and the Sinking of the World Economy, has just been published in paperback.
